      Few questions around transfers and physical assistance.

      1) do caregivers generally go through training in this and is that arranged through OT or are  there other recommended resources?

      2) is it impossible to avoid some discomfort for the patient and need to find balance in this or is it just lack of experience with a person and gets easier once person helping know an individual patient ? Noticed even the hospital nurses and trained staff often seem too rough. Can this be avoided or is this normal?

      3) if there isn’ta resources or solution to a temporary mobility problem is the answer just manpower? For example, we need to move but it’s going to take a couple months I think. We have stairs to get in and out the door and if he is too weak, do we just have a couple of people carry him or 2 people with gait belt if he can stand somewhat?  I can’t call 911 to get him into the house and electric stair lift installed for 2 months on a house we are trying to sell isn’t feasible.

      thanks in advance  for all suggestions!!!
